Below is a chart showing the total number of persons obtaining lawful permanent resident status in the United States each year. Becoming a permanent resident is often referred to as obtaining a green card.
Keep in mind that there are two major routes to obtain a green card: Apply for Adjustment of Status (Form I-485), which is managed by USCIS; or apply through Consular Processing, which is mainly handled by the Department of State. USCIS Annual Report typically only covers I-485 statistics, so their total number may be significantly smaller. DHS Yearbook, which is the source for data used in this chart, covers both types: I-485 and Consular Processing.
